Noise pop is a term used to loosely describe a number of alternative rock bands that fuse punk rock's attitude and anger with the atonal noise, feedback, and free song structures of noise music, presented in a decidedly pop context. Most noise pop bands owe a heavy debt to the influence of the Velvet Underground, but the style truly began in the 1980s underground scene: chief purveyors include The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, and Dinosaur Jr. Noise pop bands are considered inspirations for the shoegazing scene of the late 80's and early 90's; in fact, many shoegaze bands could be considered noise pop. The genre continues to be a force in the indie rock scene of today. Some more modern, but lesser-known examples are Deerhoof, Xiu Xiu and The Double, all of whom are popular with the indie music website Pitchfork Media.
